of republican senators have announced they won't try to filibuster the confirmation of chuck hagel as secretary of defense. the pledge by arizona senator john mccain and others likely means hagel has enough votes should another republican decide to filibuster his bid. activists in syria are claiming over 270 people have been killed in nationwide violence since sunday. the syrian observatory for human rights says at least 90 people died across syria on monday after some 180 people lost their lives building was bombed in the northern city of aleppo. the head of refugee operations for the middle east and north africa warned syria's violence is causing system of destruction. >> it is an appalling situation in syria. all of these figures probably are not capturing the true story of how syria, the people, but also the syria the country, are facing systematic destruction. >> for diplomats recently have claimed a small breakthrough in the impasse between syrian rebels and president al-assad after opposition leader said he is open to sitting down with al- assad's aids. iran in president ahmadinejad has
and bullets and bombs. the president could with draw the nomination of chuck hagel as defense security. he is so ignorant of the real enemy we face he believe that is iran can be trusted and israel can't. high would be better suited for taking tickets at yellow stone than defending against the treats. ip hope you will call and e-mail your senator to use common sense and while acknowledging that the president has the privilege to name his team. he doesn't have the right to put people on his team that betray the trust of the american people and the people of the world. that's my few. >> most of the over 4,000 persons who are on board of the carnival cruise ship are either home or on the way home. it is going to be a long time before they forget their ordeal. >> more than 4000 people stuck on a cruise ship that is dead in the water. a fire knocked out the ship's power. >> she was crying and said they had power or running water and no way to use the bathroom. >> people are sleeping on the ship's deck. >> she wanted her mommy to come and get her and i couldn't of course,! tug boats are towing i
. but that's diplomacy comest you can get a bit of a pass. senator hagel, key was had by the executive commission on china, but talk solely about development issues. rule of law and economic growth is fine. but that's not the job he's getting. he said absolutely nothing about the rise of china. he's also said absolutely nothing about he has had the defense department is going to do with the rise of china in an era of budget cuts to the defense department he supports. it's very troubling, fred has a great way of putting this consensus reality that in a sense it doesn't matter. so did not do the job better and you can take that for granted. japan for the first time in a decade has not just her and run defense budget, modestly $1.6 billion increase. it would be nice to see it continue, but everyone watches very carefully to see the leading indicator, which is us and what we're willing to do. taiwan is a country rushing to the exit to make sure nothing comes between it and china and therefore i would argue the same credibility over whether the united states would intervene and i taiwan str
